Clinical accuracy
Proven clinical accuracy: backed by a multitude of independent scientific studies for a wide variety of workflows. Data/references available upon request from 3Shape.

Light and output
TRIOS Core captures at least 1400 images per second, uses LED as a light source and outputs PLY, DCM and STL files.

Dimensions and use
TRIOS Core has the same dimensions as TRIOS 3, measuring 4.8x4.0x27.3 centimeters (HWL). It weighs 340 grams, including battery and tip.


TRIOS computer
Included in your order, you will get a 3Shape approved, preconfigured computer with TRIOS software installed. All computers run on Windows 11 pro.

Other computers
For a CAD/CAM solution that does not require TRIOS scanning, you can select a PC according to the Minimum PC requirements for 3Shape Software packages.

Ethernet connection
Another important element of your solution is your ethernet speed. All communication with labs, partners and servers will happen through your ethernet connection. We recommend a 25 Mbit/s or faster connection, with 5 Mbit/s at a minimum. The faster the network, the faster you can send and receive an order. For example: a typical TRIOS order of 30Mb will take approximately 30 seconds to transmit on a 10Mbit/s line. Check network speed requirements.

What others say about TRIOS

TRIOS knows intuitively how to eliminate interferences like lips and tongue. It captures only the information that I need to get the work done, which allows a better use of my time, by letting the assistants scan with the TRIOS unit.

Dr. Barbara Jurim

about ease of use

The workflows make it easy to communicate. I can add photos into my case, send those straight to the lab, and get designs sent back to me, which then I can validate and return to the lab. Brilliant.

about lab collaboration
